Scientists predict a 5-year hot streak
This year is on track to be the fourth-hottest on record as temperatures shatter records around the world this summer, according to scientists. And researchers aren't expecting a reprieve anytime soon.
Rising temps might mean fewer traffic stops
Add these to the list of surprising possible consequences of climate change: more fatal car crashes and tainted food supplies on hot days.
Warming affects blazes, but not everywhere or every time
Scientists agree that climate change is exacerbating California's wildfires. But people help intensify blazes in other ways, making it notoriously difficult to predict the location and strength of future fires.
Manipulating sun rays won't help crops grow
A widely debated geoengineering proposal may not be the climate solution some have hoped for — at least when it comes to safeguarding global food security.
A hotter Pacific Ocean might be warming up the Arctic
From record-breaking heat waves to major declines in sea ice, the Arctic is seeing some of the most dramatic climate change of any region on Earth. That may be influenced by a warming Pacific Ocean, new research suggests.
